Springfield Releases the XD-M Elite 3.8

The Springfield Armory® XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact packs all the features of the popular Elite line into a CCW-ready package. This new pistol has a compact slide and short, concealable frame with a removable flared magwell for ultra-fast reloads. The Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META™) gives you the finest factory trigger available in a polymer-framed pistol. With a magazine capacity of 14+1 (and the ability to employ extended magazines for a full-size grip and 19+1), the XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact is a concealable defender ready for carry.

3.8” MATCH GRADE BARREL – The XD-M® Elite 3.8″ features a hammer-forged barrel designed to deliver long life and match-grade accuracy when it counts.

14-ROUND MAGAZINE – The XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact pistol’s magazine holds an impressive 14 rounds of 9mm, giving you unparalleled self-defense firepower in a very compact package.

COMPACT FRAME W/ SHORT MAGWELL – Designed for deep-cover concealment, the XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact features a compact grip frame designed to offer maximum capacity — 14+1 — within a minimal footprint. A flared and extended magwell ensures fast reloads.

To facilitate quick reloads, the XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact also features a removable extended and flared “short” magwell. An additional benefit of the removable magwell is that you can quickly convert the pistol from a compact to a full-size frame with a 19+1 capacity. These extended magazines can be purchased separately on our webstore.
